    The food was excellent as always. The "salt air" margueritas and freshly made guacamole and chips were fantastic and the service was outstanding. Even on a busy Friday night our server made us feel welcome and went above and beyond to be sure our needs were met.

    At first the hostess offered us a table in a far corner next to the door to the outside area and after asking to be moved she put us in what I think was a prime location-not sure why she didn’t put us there to begin with. The wait team and food instantly made me forget my annoyance at the hostess. For the next two hours we had AMAZING service and AMAZING food. Our waitress knew everything about the menu from drinks (cocktails and wine) to food/dessert. We had the perfect amount to feel full and so happy. It is not often these days to have an experience where you can’t wait to give them more tip than the recommended amount. Well done!!
